About this pro

I love working with my students one on one or in a group setting. I structure my teaching methods based on how my students pick-up and receive the information/steps that I'm teaching. I am extremely patient and encourage my students to ask questions!

I love teaching people to dance. Dancing can not be learned from a book and should be passed from one person to another! It fills me with pride when I see that my students are confident dancing to the music, moving around the dance floor, dancing their wedding dance or competing at a competition!
